Submission Guidelines and Instructions – Symposia, Workshops & Forums

Full Symposium Submission and Guidelines

  • It is recommended that you compile all information necessary for completing this form in a word document (or other similar document) and spell check your text prior to completing this application.

  • PLEASE NOTE: Full symposia are 2 hours in length and may have no more than 5 speakers, one of whom must be the discussant. This provides approximately 25 minutes each for four presentations (20 minutes for the talk and 5 minutes for questions), and 20 minutes for the discussant. These guidelines are designed to ensure that speakers have the opportunity to present greater depth and breadth of their topic and to promote more discussion during the session. Please encourage your discussant to present a more broad interpretation of the topic rather than focusing just on his/her own work. The discussant should tie together the prior presentations and encourage discussion from the audience

    Due to the limited number of slots for speakers, the Program Committee will select a speaker for only one symposium or workshop.

    Once the speakers, titles, and the order of their presentation have been decided (in February), nothing can be changed.

  • When you are notified that your proposal has been accepted for inclusion in the program, you must relay the information to the co-chair and speakers, reconfirm their participation, their member status (member/non-member), and transmit this information in a timely fashion to our office. Early Bird Registration fees will be discounted by 50%  for up to 5 speakers in a full symposium.  Please list the names and member status of every person who is to receive the discount.  We need the information prior to the individual’s attempting to register.  You should remind all participants that they must register online for the meeting, using the appropriate code provided by the chair, and reserve rooms in the hotel. It is expected that all speakers will attend at least a few days of the meeting and not limit their participation to the one session in which they are presenting.

    *The Program Committee will exercise its judgment in deciding whether full symposia should be altered due to programmatic needs. In the event that a full symposium is altered, the Program Chair will contact the Symposium Chair to discuss which speakers will be included.

Please note that we have made a change to the submission process.
Faxed/emailed application forms or the jot-form system are no longer accepted. Like last year, the online X-CD system will be used. In this system, you will create your session and enter overall details (e.g., title, abstract) in a parent page, then add speaker details in child pages. After you enter speaker information, you’ll also need to answer a few questions under the “edit” option next to each presenter’s name. Compile all information necessary for completing an application form in a word document prior to completion. With this system, you will be able to save your work and edit it until the submission deadline. For questions, please contact the CPDD Program Chair (william.stoops@uky.edu) directly.
